man, give it to me before throwing it out.

How are you copying it, you said you were a newbie. If you follow Cal_G's tutorial exactly, and burn to DVD-R. It will work.

Stupid question, but you have a DVD-burner right?

Only thing I can say is, is it chipped correctly? Have you tested any working backups on it to make sure the modding is correct?

You say they are on TDK CD-R, most XBox's will RARELY read CD-R. Best thing to test is, get a WORKING DVD-R from someone and test your chip.

Stop it with the yelling in caps also :P

NO DVD-R WORKS, NOTHIN WORKS. SO I CAME TO THE CONCLUSION EITHER THE XBOX IS MESSED UP OR THE DISK I GOT IS MESSED UP. I GOT 5 XBOX GAMES ON CDR IN THE MAIL. TRIED MANY TIMES TO COPY TO THOSE DISK. NOTHIN WORKS.

Well, have you tried making a burn yourself? Get an original - FTP the files over to the PC HD and burn using Cal_G's tutorial to burn. It will work on a decent DVD-R media and burn on 1x.

If that doesn't work, it's the chip.

Like I said, not all XBox is going to play the CD-R backup, some with Philips drive would be prob not.

1. Get a working DVD-R backup, either buy one or burn one yourself.
2. This would check to see if your mod works.

Also, do you have Evo-X dashboard installed? If you can run unassigned code like the dash or any prog/games of the XBox HD, then the chip is working.

If not, send me your XBox before you trash it, lol :P
